SPIRIT of JEFFERSON and FARMER'S ADVOCATE NEWS - (~ PA ;rE B7 9 ' Wednesda); March 7, ,A) 18 EMILY WELLS KEARNEYSVILLE - Maybe your neighbors, friends, parents or grand- parents make it look easy. But the last time you tried to grow tomatoes, the plant withered and died before you were able to make your first salad. Or maybe you've nev- er had much luck with house- plants, so for the umpteenth time you've put off starting a garden "until next year." Yes, it may still be chilly, but before you know it gardening season will be in full swing. No one ever said gardening was easy, but it also doesn't have to be overly difficult or complicated. Even the most experienced in the trade will openly share their frustra- tions with pest problems or poor weather conditions. Gardening is a pastime loved by many, and for good reason. Gardening can help you reduce stress, improve physical activity, improve mental health, eat healthi- 101 work- er and save money. It's no surprise gardeners refer to this hobby as "their happy place." Why not take the time to make your own "happy place" in 20187 From windowsills to apart- ment balconies to backyards big and small, any space can be turned into a functional garden space. If you've always dreamed of growing your own food but never quite knew where to start, come attend Garden- ing 101, a one-day workshop happening later this month. For a $5 fee, you'll get you all the knowledge you need. Learn from the local garden- ing experts - members of the Berkeley-Jefferson Extension Master Gardener Association - on how to plan for a gar- den, pick out seeds, start seeds and care for your plants until they're ready for their spot on the dinner table. Come earn your green thumb, and open the door to gardening. - Emily Wells works for the Jefferson County WVU Extension Service and writes regularly for the Spirit of Jefferson.
